Aural Explorations of a West African Harp.
Sean Gaskell presents a performance and educational demonstration of the kora – an ancient 21-stringed harp from West Africa – featuring traditional songs of the kora’s musical repertoire. These songs of war, hardship, love and loss, present the history and fabric of Mande society, from which the instrument originates.
